The first time we went out in our wheelchair, someone grabbed the handles and pushed us without our consent or knowledge. It was terrifying, we didn't know what was happening and we didn't know their intentions. We thought for a second they were trying to kidnap us. It's like someone grabbing your wrist and pulling you forward. However, later in that walk someone did ask and get consent to help us out getting to the right place to the when we were at the bottom of a hill we would take forever to get back up. We've seen people make spikes as deterrents to people just grabbing the wheelchair and pushing, however sometimes those handles are useful.

While these spikes may look sharp, they are squishy enough to still be pushed on without poking or needing to be removed for proper use. They will look unappealing to strangers but those in the know will know it's safe to move along. They are especially helpful in emergency situations as those responding will not need to struggle with removing them and can just move right along.

There is nothing more satisfying than YEETING it into a wall and having it just...stick.
